On a related note to my last post about my recent shopping spree at my MOMs group's semi-annual consignment sale, I wanted to ask what brands of children's clothing my mom readers think are the best quality. Up until now, our sons have grown quickly enough that wear-and-tear on their clothes has only been issue insofar as I might've wanted to pass on an item to someone else. But now that they are crawling and pulling up, it won't be long before they are walking and running and making more messes.
Gap and Gymboree both seem to be highly rated for wearing well. Do you agree? What other brands would you recommend as durable and long-lasting?
An acquaintance of mine also mentioned that she buys mostly European brands of clothing for her children because she finds them to be of better quality, but I was distracted and didn't get to ask her what brands. Does anyone else buy non-U.S. brands for their kids' clothing?
